Only 7 Things?

Because I could go on and on about me forever!

Hello Sailor nominated me for the Seven Things About Me Award. It is the Blog Days of Summer so I’m going to accept and tell you at least, at LEAST Seven things about me. Lucky you!

Here are the rules of accepting the award.

  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you.
  2. Share seven things about yourself.
  3. Nominate other bloggers you think deserve the award, and post on their blog to let them know they’ve been nominated.

Thank you Hello Sailor for nominating me and for painting my beautiful bird picture which I still need to get framed but this is it and it will eventually hang in my bathroom. I live in Portland and I put a bird on it.

Custom painted just for me!!!

Seven (7) Things About ME:

1.  I have twin sisters. I’m not a twin but I am related to some, well just two. Two people who  are twins not two sets of twins.

The O’Connor Twins. They are taller now.

2.  My sophomore year in college I discovered a hair about an inch long growing out of a scar on my throat. Now I have that hair and it’s gray PLUS I have two on my chin. Old age is for hotties.

3.  I had a cyst removed from my throat when I was 2. I have a scar across my throat that some people mistake for a tracheotomy. What if I had one of those tracheotomies that they have to do on the fly with a Bic pen? I didn’t have any kind but that would be wild.

4.  I still have my first edition copy of The Preppy Handbook. And it might be worth something if I hadn’t colored in it. But I don’t think I could part with it.

5. I played varsity tennis for three years in high school.

1981. Please note Chrissie Evert racquet.

6.  I make ugly faces when I’m alone in the elevator and then laugh at myself.

Like this kind of ugly

7.  I have subscriptions to Food & Wine, Martha Stewart Living and Vanity Fair. I read one of those cover to cover every month.

Bonus thing about me: I don’t drink coffee or tea in the morning, only Diet Coke.

And I will nominate some other blogs here. Nominees do not have to participate but I hope my readers will go read their blogs because they are really good writers…whether they are funny or heartbreaking, they are always worth a read.

Kitty DrunkDrunk is crazy original and super funny. I’ve become a K DD pusher because she entertains me so.

Pensees Sans Frontieres (I don’t know how to do the accents). Artyelf is documenting a powerful journey of recovery and hopefully healing.

Walk with Mrs. P and read her too and her name’s Maggie and she also makes hilarious cards.

My boyfriend Simon at Sweet and Weak. He’s blocked so maybe the 7 things will help him think of something. He’s been FP’d four times. Has he given me even one? Noooooo.

The White Trash Gourmet because Kim has a mouth on her and plays Friends with Words with me.

So there it is. You’re welcome.

    1. I also fart in the shower and laugh. Deren thought I only did it when I was around him but one day he was in the house and I didn’t know it and I was still laughing out loud. Love you back!

  1. Maggie, I wish I had a preppy handbook. I had you figured for a caffeine person, but I guess DC has plenty of that. Congrats and thanks for the hilarious and honest sharing. I’ll check out the above blogs.

  2. Hilarious! Do you remember the Mash episode where Hawkeye had to do the tracheotomy and use a pen? I love that show. That was random, huh?

  3. I am a Diet Coke ADDICT. I always say that when I die from whatever they put in that drink to make it so addicting, please put a can in my coffin.
    Thank you soooo much for the nomination! I will have to think of seven things and pay it forward…

  4. 🙂 you made me happy. Loving Kitty DrunkDrunk. (Please tell me you tweeze the hairs when you see them! I’ve got a new old lady hair growing out of my shoulder. You can bet your bippy I pulled that bitch out immediately upon discovery.)

    1. Of course I do! What bothers me is the very first time I notice it and it’s loooonnnggg. Well shit, how long has that been there and no one mentioned it??

      Bet your bippy! Lady, we’re old 🙂

  5. I drink diet coke in the morning too (before coffee) this morning, I made it all the way to the car before I realized I had grabbed a stray can of PBR left over from a party a while ago. I almost went with it. Thanks for the nod and I’m not sure on the rules but if you stop being my blog girlfriend, I think you get half of my Freshly Pressed. You are the best Maggie, I really appreciate you.

      1. Are you serious? Well I am truly honored then. I can’t believe I have actually maintained writing a blog for almost a year. I started in is September of 2011. I may just shut her down at the one year mark because you are right about the being blocked thing. Thanks again.

  6. Swoon! (THUD.) Oh K DD is just as flattered as can be! She’s giving you a high dewclaw and howling along to “We Are the Champions!” Thankee to ye! P.S. DIET COKE IS THE ELIXIR OF THE GODS.

      1. I have one of those “In case of emergency break glass” boxes with the tiny hammer above my kitchen door only it has a Diet Coke in it instead of a fire extinguisher. NOT EVEN KIDDING. I don’t know how to show you a pic so you’ll just have to imagine the gloriousness.

What do YOU think of me?
